Trump’s stand on radical Islamic terror isn’t very well received in the UK. And when President Trump tweeted some videos of Islamic violence recently, a certain Islamic mayor in London threw a fit.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan once again called upon Prime Minister Theresa May Thursday to cancel “her ill-judged offer of a state visit” to President Donald Trump after the president retweeted videos from a far-right British group depicting Muslims engaging in violence.
Khan, who is a Muslim, took issue with Trump’s retweets of the videos from Jayda Fransen, British First Party’s deputy leader. May rebuked Trump for the retweets and issued a statement Wednesday saying: “It is wrong for the president to have done this.”
But Khan argued that May didn’t go far enough in her condemnation of Trump. In a statement issued Thursday, the London mayor said that Trump’s use of Twitter “to promote a vile, extremist group that exists solely to sow division and hatred in our country” should disqualify him from visiting the United Kingdom like other presidents traditionally have done.
… Khan indeed asked May to cancel a previous state visit invitation to Trump back in June after Trump rebuked Khan’s politically correct response to the June 2017 terror attacks in Borough Market and at the London Bridge. Trump had tweeted, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!'”
While the PM has issued an invitation to Trump to visit Britain, no date has been set.
